Civil Process

The Civil Process Division is responsible for the serving of court papers issued from all Virginia State courts and those processes issued from other states, being served in the County of Orange. Civil Process Deputies are tasked with serving court issued documents to include summons, subpoenas, notices, evictions, warrants in debt, repossessions, levies, sheriff sales, and many other types of civil papers. They also provide assistance to the Patrol Deputies when necessary. The Civil Process Division is charged with the delivery of processes in a timely and efficient manner.

Civil papers are served by our Civil Process Division, Deputy Jamee Darnell and Deputy Christopher Williams. They can both be reached at the Orange County Sheriff's Office (540) 672-1200.
